Parent’s Guide to the Spiritual Growth of Children

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This thick guide walks you through all the phases you will face in the spiritual growth of your child from birth to age 12. I really appreciated the detailed plans, explanations, and practical steps of application that this volume has to offer. It's organized - which really appealed to me! - and is easy to read in portions and then refer back to in the future. I think that for a first generation Christian this is a valuable resource in raising their children in the knowledge of our Lord. While this book is very helpful and full of insight for daily practice, I think it's best used in conjunction with some great parenting books such as Shepherding A Child's Heart or Sacred Parenting in which the reason behind the application is explored in greater depth.

All in all this is a good book for any Christian parent to read and most everyone will find at least a handful of helpful tips. However, it can also be overwhelming due to it's extremely thorough nature and so I highly recommend reading one of the above mentioned books before or at the same time as working through this one.
